In Uganda, Hakeem has a large family and a father who was often absent; he always had the responsibility to help and support them and sacrifice his life. He always felt unique in that sense.
“But to find job opportunities, I had to leave my country and family behind. Back home, I used to be a teacher so when I decided to move and reached Turkey, I tried to teach English but it’s not easy to teach people with a different culture. We’re all very different.”
Hakeem left Turkey to try to make it in Greece. He wants to start a new life there.
“I have many dreams but I must keep my feet firmly on the ground. All my thoughts go to my family that I miss a lot. I had to leave for both economic and political reasons. I’m looking for a safe place to live in a safe country.”
What Hakeem wants, it’s to make it for his family, at any cost.
